Forest Lands as Investments for Insurance Companies
How does forest property meet the investment requirements of insurance companies? The author analyzes the possibilities of such investment. Although he feels that they are not good at present, except in some degree for land carrying merchantable timber, he is optimistic that the time will come when forest land, managed on a sustained yield basis and insured against fire, will be accepted as an important method of investment for insurance companies.
